Arctic Council: Arctic Human Development Report

May 1, 2004


The Arctic Human Development Report is the first comprehensive assessment of human well-being covering the entire Arctic region.

Mandated under the Arctic Council's 2002 Ministerial Declaration as a "priority project" designed to provide a "comprehensive knowledge base" for the work of the Council's Sustainable Development Programme, the AHDR was a centerpiece of the Icelandic Chairmanship of the Arctic Council during 2002-2004.

The report contains 11 substantive chapters, an introduction, a conclusion and a Summary of Major Findings. Based on contributions from some 90 scientists located in all the members of the Arctic Council and coordinated by a secretariat based at the Stefansson Arctic Institute in Akureyri, Iceland, the report offers a wide-ranging scientific assessment of achievements and challenges relating to human development in the Arctic.
